Girl Scouts of the USA and Visa continue to collaborate in support of the Digital Cookie™ platform. Providing a plethora of opportunities for girls to have new and technology-rich experiences, the Digital Cookie platform instills confidence in girls and helps them learn essential life skills. The platform is a fun, educational tool in which girls can run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie businesses as they go beyond the booth with mobile and online channels and discover the leader within.
Like Girl Scouts, Visa is focusing on a digital approach with innovative payment products, such as Visa Checkout, which makes buying and selling in the online world fast and easy. When Girl Scout Cookie customers use Visa Checkout, they have a simple and secure way to buy their favorite cookies online and support local girls and Girl Scout councils in a one-stop shop.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Girl Scouts to empower girls to succeed in today's digital world,” said Ellen Richey, vice chairman of risk and public policy at Visa and current member of the Girl Scouts of Northern California’s board of directors. “We are very pleased to provide the girls with mentorships and tools to help them navigate the digital commerce environment and develop sales skills that work, both at the cookie booth and online."
Through Visa’s collaboration with GSUSA, the Digital Cookie platform provides opportunity for girls to take their cookie businesses to the next level, setting them up for future success in our increasingly technology-based world.
